The definitive Mozart pianist of our time continues her Grammy Award-winning series of concerto recordings with No. 9 known as “Jeunehomme” and very popular No. 21.
The Concertos Nos. 23 and 24 release in the series was a huge critical and popular success, already selling nearly 30,000 copies and winning a Grammy award.
These extraordinary performances are the result of Mitsuko Uchida’s longstanding association with The Cleveland Orchestra. Unlike her first cycle of recordings for Philips, they feature Dame Mitsuko directing the orchestra herself, from the piano, delighting in a very special musical collaboration.
“No pianist conveys the rapture of Mozart quite like Mitsuko Uchida does” (The Independent)
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major, K271 "Jeunehomme"
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K467 'Elvira Madigan'
Allegro vivace assai
9th September 2012
“joyful, probing and vivacious in the early Jeunehomme in E flat major, K271 and in the grand C major, K467, both of which have famously tender, poetic slow movements. The ensemble between Uchida and the Cleveland is cleanly articulated but always full of wonder and curiosity.”
6th October 2012
“Uchida’s third disc as soloist/director with the Cleveland Orchestra is every bit as satisfying as its predecessors”
“While these performances don't necessarily eclipse her earlier ones, Uchida remains one of the most thoughtful and poetic of Mozartians, with a fastidious control of sound second to none.”
